My first day in town I visited Al Pasha for a late lunch. I came with my family. 4 total people. We had hummus w/ pita and tabouli for apps and for lunch we had the lamb shawarma, 2 chicken kebab, and shrimp kebab. Everything was cooked perfectly. The lamb shawarma was one of the tastiest shawarma I've ever had.... More

Place is quiet and nice, close to the road side. There's enough parking. I had the steak and my friend had the lamb chops. We love eating there so much that we find ourselves sometimes ordering take out. Service is good and they make us feel welcomed.

We had a great meal - from the appetizer veggie sampler (several Lebanese dips) to the mains. 2 kids split a giant steak, one had garlic shrimp. The adults had grilled chicken, Greek salad and the kebab sampler plate. Everything was fresh and delicious -great meal! You should go - completely different and really good!

Great fresh food, and attentive service. The owner watches over every table. The place is very clean and nicely decorated. The food comes out promptly. The desert and coffee was also great. We had the Creme Brulee and we all agreed it was the best we ever ate. And the prices are very fair. We will return every trip.Thank you

My adult son wanted to try hookah for the first time and we went to AL Pasha and sat outside with some hummus, hookah and beer and it was perfect. The nice breeze from the bay made it very comfortable to sit outside under the covered patio. Since this restaurant is located right in Simpson Bay, it is a good... More

Their new name now is AL PASHA not ALDYWAN any more but all remain excellent even better than before by upgrading their menu extending their terrace and renovating their restaurant They are a must visit restaurant in St Maarten and they are in the process of opening another one in Phillipsburg. I thought they had a website, but they do not. The phone number is on the description for reservation They are in dutch St Maarteen and you do not have country for them. The food was very good and authentic There are not many authentic Lebanese restaurant out there!Remember Their new name now is AL PASHA not ALDYWAN any more look for their sign in their pictures album
